Your quick guide to
renting computer displays
often, audio and visual needs are at the bottom of a
meeting planners' list. You have a speaker to line up,
an audience to seat, materials to create, and a host
of details from meals to sleeping arrangement to set.
But if the wrong equipment comes in, you
find out in a
hurry how important it is.
Still, planning for the audio
and visual does not have to be a complex task. Your
rental supplier should be able to do most of the work
for you. At audio video 4 rent, at least, we need only
a few basic pieces of information to make sure your
meeting comes off without a hitch.
A checklist for meetings that
include computer projection.
Most meetings today involve a computer at some point.
This is what you need to know in advance if you will
be renting equipment to display computer graphics or
other types of presentations.
- What kind of computer will
you be using? IBM compatible, Macintosh, or
something else? If it's an iMac, be sure to mention
that to your rental supplier, because their
requirements are different than other computers.
- What is the computer's
resolution? SVGA is 800 x 600, XGA is 1024 x 768,
SXGA 1280 x 1024, and UXGA 1600 x 1200.
- If you need to show a
workstation–or any other computer that's not VGA,
SVGA, XGA, SXGA or Macintosh–what is its horizontal
- If you're using a laptop,
make sure you know how to activate its monitor
output. (Newer laptops can be programmed in the
windows setup to have the monitor output activated
at all times. Others might have a command such as
Function-F5 to activate the monitor output. Be sure
to try this before your meeting begins.)
- Will you be showing a video?
(We have new 20", 23" 26' and 30 " LCD monitors that
- Will you be using
- Will you be using slides?
- How big is the room you'll be
- How many people will be
attending the meeting?
- Is darkening the room
possible? If possible, would it be a problem for
your meeting to do so?
Types of equipment
Once you've gathered the above information, there are
still a few choices you'll end up making that will
affect the quality of the image you get and the cost
of your rental. The most important is the type of
computer display device you'll use.
Large screen monitors
Generally, if only a handful of people will be
present, a 18" to 30" LCD or CRT monitor is your best
bet. If the impression you make is especially
important, you may want to consider a plasma monitor,
which is a flat-screen display, usually 37", 42",
50", 61" and our 84" multi-plasma giant screen
diagonal. Either way, a monitor has excellent
resolution and you will not have to darken your
If you need to accommodate 10 people or more and
especially if color graphics, brightness and contrast
are important to you, you'll want an LCD projector. We
have projectors for different screen sizes, brightness
and resolutions available for rental to accommodate
any specific application. If you need to travel, you
can rent a projector that weighs from 5 to 10 pounds.
If you need to keep room lights on or expect a large
audience, we can provide projectors up to 10,000 ANSI
lumens in brightness.
Screen and sound
Your last decisions involve the size and type of
screen and the sound system you'll use. For a large
meeting, selection of either can be complex. Room size
and conditions, seating arrangements and factors such
as lighting, acoustics, and the types of other
equipment you are using all affect what you need. Your
best bet is to get an expert at audio video 4 rent
involved, and such advice is available at no charge.
